Lion. "The Iron Mask" is noted also
for its excellent direction which
stresses mystery and fight scenes.
A 1939 Hollywood production of
this same story was compared to the
earlier film by critics recently. As
far -as "suspense" ancf "mystery" are
concerned, the critics rate the 1920
version equal if not superior.

Is Successfulj
Receiving the gratifying figure of;
200 applications from 20 states in
two days, the Union's Absentee Bal-1
lot Service has been busy lately help-
ing youthful citizens of the Univer-
sity cast their votes for presidential,
and state favorites.
The Wolverine state leads in the
number of applications, ¢ approxi-
mately half of the requests coming'
from student residents of Michigan.
New York state rates second in num-
ber of applicants.
Prospective voters may obtain all
information concerning individual
state balloting regulations by com-
ing to the Union Lobby between 3
and 5 p.m. and day. In addition
Michigan residents may now obtain
their absentee ballots directly at the
Union through the cooperation of
Ann Arbor City Clerk Fred C. Perry,
who has supplied the ballots.
As all absentee ballots must be
signed before a certified notary the
Union will provide this service with-
out charge to all who care to take
advantage of it. The notary will be
available at the Union in a few weeks
when absentee ballots are received
from the various state election offi-
cials.
All those who expect to have their
ballots accepted must act promptly
for some states require that requests
for absentee ballots be filed 30 days
in advance of election.

Prof. Roger L. Morrison of the I
transportation division of the civil'
engineering department will deliver
a paper on the question "Are Traffic
Engineers Too Concerned Over Safe-
ty?" Tuesday at a convention of
traffic engineers in Chicago.
In his paper Professor Morrison
criticizes his colleagues not with be-
ing too concerned over safety but
with being too little concerned over
facilitating the movement of traffic.
The engineer's first duty, he writes,
"is to see to it that traffic moves
with the least possible delay and in-
convenience. His second duty is to
see that this movement is carried
on as safely as possible."
The running of a transportation
system in a city may be a greater
and more important activity than any
other municipal function, he empha-
sizes, and therefore has to be run
properly. At the present time, Pro-
fessor Morrison asserts, there are
nine agencies in our transportation
system "each going its own sweet
way with no agency to coordinate
their efforts to a common end."
Answering the argument that if
these departments work well change
Is unnecessary, Professor Morrison
points out that most of these depart-
ments are not primarily interested
in traffic and they do not have
enough experts on their staffs. "Even
if they were interested and had ex-
perts," he continues, "two or more
agencies working on the same prob-
lem are bound to work at cross pur-

poses sometimes, unless they work
together."
The remedy, he believes, would be
the appointing of a coordinator, pre-
ferably a traffic engineer, who could
advise other department heads on
an equal footing with him and bring
about the cooperation that is so
greatly needed.
Professor Morrison concludes his
paper by warning the engineers to
"be ready to meet this added oppor-
tunity and responsibility when it
comes.
